    hi all,
    something awful happened to my mini.
    I placed it under my aircon, and for some reason, the aircon started to drip.
    right on the fan grills on the mini.
    not a lot, probably like an eighth of a glass of water.
    so, i rushed to unplug everything from the mini.
    and leave it to dry.
    problem is... when i plug it all in, i start with the power cable.
    just when i plug it, the fan gone furious. like 6000rpm furious.
    the state of the mini is currently OFF.
    that's one thing i'm confused about.
    second, after a while the fan speed goes down..
    but never really really low.
    even when it's off, and the room is cold (not just cool) it's still noticeably whirring.
    and the mini is still OFF.
    when i turn it on.. after just 15-20 minutes the fan goes furious again. like 6000rpm.
    what can i do to fix this, and how much damage have i done.
    and to answer a few preliminary questions.
    the mini is a late 2009 mini, C2D, 4GB ram, and usually running on 18C room.
    and i've never upgraded any hardware, RAM, HDD, everything.. still as it was.
    and one more thing, right now, the OS is fine, the mini is working fine, boots up perfectly, and runs perfectly.
    just the fans
    thanks all.
